You can spot from the top level of Daily Parking Garage #2 ($5 per hour, max. charge $15 per day, only good for photos w/300-400mm lens in the morning though) which gives you good views of 19R/1L. Anything going to Hawthorne Aviation, Fed Ex, UPS, & ABX
ramps will also come by you. The observation deck is of course closed due to the usual overreaction of security personnel. The only hotel that flights come by on arrival when the ops are S is off of Rt.28, but, they are way high in the sky, the onsite airport hotel is worthless for spotting.
